We are hosting the site but might be it is shared. I am not clear about this.
We use phpMyAdmin.
We edit php files in Dreamweaver.
Would the data be sucured if we restart it? As it is a large database and uses the online for all their works.
The site had been recently hacked and we removed the malware from a few files and uploaded after which it worked fine. However we have changed the FTP and database passwords since then.
Would it be the problem with regard to the service provider? I am confused as data is available but not able to run queries and operations on it. When I login to cPanel I am unable to view the tables, structure and data. A message displays asking for permission to view secure and non secure items to display and then an empty page with Action Canceled or Page not displayed.

You should also routinely create back ups of your database if it's important to you. Most hosts don't do this for you, unless you're paying extra for a back up service. Personally I use a little php-based database dumping script I created some time ago that I then connect to a cron job so that it runs automatically to back up and compress my databases a few times per week. Once I start set it up and start it, everything is 100% automated. I don't even have to go in to remove old db dumps because the script cleans up after itself and can be configured to save as many or few copies as I want. By no means is my little hand rolled script the only one out there. There are literally dozens to choose from, all available for free.
That may or may not be nothing. If it didn't happen before though, I'd want to first track down where and why that's happening. At least that's where I'd start the diagnosis to see if there were still bits of the hack in there somewhere that had been missed during clean up.

Like Randy, my biggest concern would be what they did when they hacked in.
They can be quite clever with obfuscating code and injecting it into SQL, simply calling a URL could triger it off again.
Which could be also as Randy suggests relating to this secure/non-secure issue.
If they have dumped some code in your pages, restores can sometime be the only easy and sure fire way of resetting everything back to what it was before the hack took place, so backups are essential.
Also if the server is inhouse and you only access it from inhouse as well as perhaps home with a fixed IP address, then I would lock down access via your firewal for the FTP port if possible to only allow specific IP address.
That's how ours is configured and I only access it via a DES encrypted VPN tunnel just to be sure
